“Sustainable Living’ is one of our core values and we are proud to partner with Lenzing Ecovero at the root level for the showcase of Nature’s Origami at the Lakme Fashion Week. Through this collection, our aim is to provide trend-setting styles made of sustainable viscose fibre; a shift to responsible fashion. The fashion industry is doing their bit to promote eco-friendly clothing and we believe that our creative outlook and Lenzing’s commitment would result in contributing to a healthier environment,” said Kumar.
“We are pleased to reintroduce Lenzing Ecovero at the Lakmé Fashion Week SS 2020 this year. Our past associations at LFW have helped in building the narrative of sustainable fashion among designers and influencers in the fashion fraternity. We look forward to our association with Kumar this season. Through this collection, we hope to create a larger outreach among the industry on adopting alternative resources and processes in their brand,” said Avinash Mane, commercial head, South Asia, Lenzing Group.
Nature’s Origami is engendered on the central theme of tribal and contemporary Indian art forms which allude to nature and rejuvenation. The collection is a culmination of four stories – Mrinalini Mukherjee’s exhibit at the MET, Neo Origami, Flora & Fauna, and Sundarvan. Owing to Mrinalini’s work with knotted textiles, the capsule encompasses fabric manipulation and the revival of age-old textile techniques. At the crossroads where modern chevron meets classic florals, you see laces and layering surfaces in Neo Origami. Festive felicity meets pleats and burnout velvet, and the abundance of la dolce vita in the potpourri of Sundarvan. The colour palette is an amalgamation of vegetable dyes and carefully crafted hues from deep burgundy to faded ochre and an infusion of violets and leafy greens; it can be an agent for positive change in social, economic and environmental dimensions.
Since the brand’s inception, five decades ago, Kumar’s relationship with nature has always been strong and apparent. Whether it is through processes using natural fibres or natural dyes, the brand’s efforts have been dedicated to fulfilling the void left by the harrowing exploitation of nature. This partnership with Lenzing Ecovero has further built a dialogue on sustainable fashion, thus focusing on the brand’s ideology on sustainability and ecological harmony, contributing to a cleaner, eco-responsible environment.
